In the words of Ned Flanders
…get out the crayolas and colour me Tickled Pink…
to have some so-gorgeous-it-hurts macramé hangers in stock handmade by über sharp Melbourne artist Phillipa Taylor of Ouchflower.

YELLOW Ouchflower macrame hanger plant

Pippa creates dip dyed, to die for hangers, tassels and wall hangings. You don’t need a retro pad either, they suit any modern bohemian plant-loving home. These hangers twist the whole kind of ug seventies craft into groovy hipster beachy chic. So hot right now.

Available in Yellow, Teal, White and Peach at URBAN RUSTIC Newport. But limited numbers, so get in quick.

Now just hanging out for my airplants to land…


The result of being super hot and ultra cool simultaneously. Also fresh.

And flavourful. Love that American word. So advertising-y.
Like rich creamery butter.

Cath Kidston bunting I made for Lily’s room with remnants bought on Ebay. They all slide off, being the indecisive Libran and part anal Virgin ? Virgon?  it took me some time to get the combination to my satisfaction. I have about 10-12+ metres of stars, spots and stripes. [Not into her flowers]

I could host my own vintage Tupperware party: just the tip of my ice-coloured-berg.

Vintage swizzle sticks. How cute is the little blue golf club?

Bought all together at Mona Vale Salvo’s. I wonder who collected them? I’m sure they had fun doing it.

Vintage Cocktail forks, you can buy these from my shop. If you fancy a little forking.

The colours are luminous, pastel yet almost neon.

A present from my gorgeous Father In Law, who is nothing like Abe Simpson. Though I wouldn’t mind, I love Grandpa.

Dear Lord, thank you for this microwave bounty, even though we don’t deserve it. I mean… our kids are uncontrollable hellions! Pardon my French… but they act like savages! Did You see them at the picnic? Oh, of course You did… You’re everywhere, You’re omnivorous. Oh Lord! Why did You spite me with this family?

Homer is no hipster, but …
Actually, I’ve come around on hipsters, it takes a lot of courage to all wear the same hat.
